    Hello, My ACT superscore is a 30, with a 35 English, 31 Math, 27 Reading, 27 Science. Will The 27s on the reading and science put me at a disadvantage? Im trying my hardest to improve them but I dont know if I will be able to. Will my English and Math "cancel out" the below average reading and science? Should I be worried? Thanks!

    ACT

    Hi
    The scores look good....but since the Academy super scores and you have time to get the science score up...I would prep and take it again and who knows you may even bring the other scores up as well.
    Regards

    Thanks! I know they superstore, and I'm going to try my best to raise them, but if I can't will I be at a major disadvantage?

    ACT

    Hi
    I see no major disadvantage with those scores. But you must remember the Academy looks at the whole person. Sports, leadership, GPA, volunteer services, awards ect....My DS had better than you in some and lower in others and he is in the class of 2017 as of this Thursday.
    Regards

    ACT Scores aren't everything

    My super score was only a 28 with no single score higher than 24. The ACT isn't everything.
